There were plenty of deaths, flying spells and convoluted plots. The ending was not entirely unexpected and a little unsatisfactory. There were surprises sprung on the reader and predictable revelations on certain characters.
And I am sad that this is it – Goodbye to all these years of feverish anticipation and wondrous imaginings. Goodbye Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived. After gripping our hearts for so many years, the book community will, perhaps, never find another series like you.
One of my favourite lines has got to be this, uttered by the most unlikely of character: “NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!”
